Our first Snazz Up Snowden for the new school year is October 2nd. https://fb.me/e/1ZphLU0GT
Is there anything that can be done to stop the new traffic's flow? Drop off took an hour this morning and pick up took longer than that.
Just a little “heads up” when purchasing supplies….

Greendog Running Club

We are excited to announce that Snowden will be hosting the Greendog Running Club this fall for Cross Country season for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. We will be training for 5-6 Cross Country meets (1 mile course) hosted by Memphis Youth Association (MYA) at Shelby Farms. Some of our kids ran on our team a couple of years ago, but we’re hoping to sustain a program going forward.

The goal of the Greendog Running Club is to get our kids active and teach them about running and teamwork.

We will host a summer practice on Saturday, June 24th from 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. at the Club House in Overton Park (we ask that parents stick around for this entirety of this first practice and you can enjoy Overton Park with us). After school starts, we will pick up with practices probably on a Thursday/Saturday schedule.

• Cost: Cost is $40 per runner for the season. Running jerseys for meets will be an additional $20. Payment is not due until late August, and if you have concerns about the cost, there is a potential waiver.

• Meets: All meets are at Shelby Farms on Mondays and start at 5pm. The first meet is September 13, 2021.

• Kids will need an up to date physical for participation.

If your child is interested in running cross country, please contact Bryce Ashby at [email protected]
Good morning!
Does anyone have an idea when new Kindergartners receive their assigned class/teacher?
Thank you!
Summer Reading Lists!!! Happy Summer, Greendogs! Snowden School PTO
🥎 Could anyone share any info about the middle school softball team? In addition to info about practice schedule, how often there are games, etc. Other parents are also asking about what sports are offered at Snowden, at what age can kids play, are there male and female teams (eg: soccer, basketball...)? Thank you in advance!

CHEMOURS has generously donated funds to help purchase and provide child size masks for our little ones and our teenagers. We would like to thank several of our local area churches that have agreed to be a host site for the giveaways.
Please come out to one of our MASK UP locations on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. to pick up masks for your children. Snowden School PTO
LAST CHANCE TO WEIGH IN:

I know I've posted this previously but the deadline to comment on the proposed “Smoke Shop” that is set to go into 651 N. McLean next to Dino’s is this Friday, March 19, 2021 at 9am. Comments should be sent to [email protected]

We need as many comments in opposition of the shop as possible so please circulate to other Snowden families, neighbors, and stakeholders. Background information is below:

It was originally rumored to be a v**e shop, which would have required a Special Use Permit from the City Council, but after inquiry from the Division of Planning and Development, the store’s owner claims that v**e products would make up only 15% of its projected monthly sales. To be considered a “v**e shop” it must have 50% of its sales made up of v***r related products.
In addition to v**e products, it will be selling ci**rs and to***co products, bongs, drug paraphernalia, and other “novelty items.” Obviously, we are uncomfortable with such a business being located approximately 200 feet from Snowden’s property where in non-pandemic times more than 1300 PK-8 students attend daily.
VECA, on behalf of the neighborhood, has filed an appeal and the Snowden PTO has submitted the attached letter in support of the appeal. The City Council has already put in place a moratorium on such shops going forward, BUT this moratorium does not apply to 651 N. McLean as it is not retroactive so we need your help.

In the meantime, we would ask all of you to send an email to Luca Skinner ([email protected]) expressing your opposition to a smoke shop being located at 651 N. McLean. The appeal is set to be heard on March 24, 2021. All comments must be submitted by Friday, March 19, 2021 at 9am.

If you are willing to send a comment, please reference the address (651 N. McLean) in the subject line, state your connection to the issue (neighbor/child at Snowden), and express yours concerns such as the following: (1) business presents a direct health threat to the children at our school; (2) Division of Planning and Development required only a letter stating the percentage of sales for v***r products would be less than 50% instead of requiring substantive documentation such a business plan for verification; and (3) such a smoke shop is inappropriate in this location given its proximity to a school and the neighborhood.

We are asking that the Board of Adjustment take these actions listed in order of preference: (1) deny the business authorization to operate its business in this location; (2) vacate the Division of Planning and Development’s decision and require the business to reapply with proper documentation of a business plan to demonstrate that it will not be a v**e shop; or (3) at the very least require the business to submit substantive documentation before approval and submit monthly receipts after opening to verify its sales.

If you have questions, please reach out to me or Eddie Hankins ([email protected]).

Hello Parents,

We are looking for volunteers to help proctor our state assessments this year. We will need volunteers to assist our teachers and students. We are looking for proctors each day during the weeks of April 18-April 21 and April 25-29. You will not be administering any tests, only serving as an additional adult in the rooms. If you can assist us, we will need all proctors to be at the school by 8 a.m. on the day(s) they have committed to. If you can assist our teachers during our testing week(s), please email Emily Jamerson ([email protected]), the proctor coordinator at Snowden. If you have 2nd-8th grade students at Snowden, you will not be able to proctor in their classroom.

We appreciate the ongoing support that the community has given the teachers and students at Snowden School.

Best,
Snowden School PTO
